Bdp24,Ricky Van Shelton, a country music star, sang a song, "I Meant Every Word He Said".Every time I hear this song, I tear up. Love gained, love lost, and the inevitable moment of truth when it's actually too late for you.Thanks for sharing a be...

Thanks Bill.Amongst all the reviewers' hyperbole and exaggerations, is the truth from a relatively unbiased audiophile.From your post it appears that you may own the Maggies. So, thanks for the input.Larry

Going completely off the reservation here. After reading for months about the Legacy Aerius Loudspeaker--raves about transparency bass thru the floor etc. And, even comparisons to the best 'Panels' in terms of resolution--just one more compulsive ... 
Sound Lab vs Magnepan 20.7
Rleff,I've gone back and forth a lot on this. I am pretty much decided on the Magnepans. Reason. Money. I'm sure they're not as good on the overall, but at way more than twice the price...Hope I don't regret it.Tune in next week, I may be seduced ...

Bdp24,Thanks for the heads up. I've been a fan of Sanders since he and Gayle started Martin Logan.The issue is the transparency lost through the crossover in the bass/mid bass region. I'm not saying that this has that problem, but that IS the univ...

Cerrot,We were well down that path BEFORE they came--but hey, who am I to say, 'NOT RELATED', I stand corrected Oh, Wise One! lololololol 
LSA the gem of a good system
Rolling tubes is, for me, essential. The supplied tubes sound ok, but are not to my taste. I prefer the actual tube 'sound' to the solid state sound. Well, not true. I love the control and extension of solid state, when coupled with the 'sweetness...

Brian,I live in Florida now--2500 feet from the ocean, and on a lake. Palm trees... amazing place to be.I am thinking that the more 'modestly priced' (grin) Maggies are more in my price range.Thanks for the personal invitation though.Larry 
Sound Lab vs Magnepan 20.7
Bdp24,Thanks for your response. Your characterization of the overall sound of the Sound Labs, is exactly accurate within my memory. Low level res at low volumes. I'm pretty much a medium volume on practically everything, so the 'awakening' volume ...
